They have an engine called the Press

Posted July 14, 2014 By John C Wright

Ransom, the Director at St Anne’s, explains to Merlin the Magician why it is that modern people cannot overthrow their evil rulers: “They have an engine called the Press by which the people are deceived.” That goes double when the Press is discussing Catholic matters; triple when it is an English paper; and quadruple when […]

The Evil Queen and Catholic Communion

Posted June 26, 2014 By John C Wright

I have been wondering about this topic myself a great deal recently. I am more than delighted to hear this anecdote: Over at Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter Nation (http://monsterhunternation.com/2014/06/24/gary-oldman-likes-the-double-standard-word-police-about-as-much-as-i-do/#comment-68911) a commenter named KHorn writes:   True story: my daughter was in school with Pelosi’s grandson from K-8th grade at a Catholic school. The Tuesday before […]

Strength, Weakness, Meekness

Posted June 6, 2014 By John C Wright

Patrick Richardson pens a spirited defense of manhood in an article well worth reading: http://www.miamiok.com/commentary/article_585ba993-8b79-5db3-92b7-bccb3c1114c4.html I agree with what he says but say he does not say enough. Feminism is not merely the enemy of masculinity but also the foe femininity, because it is the foe of romance. Mr. Richardson is right to regret the […]

Hell

Posted May 7, 2014 By John C Wright

Soldiers of Christ, this is required reading. This is the face of hell. This is what we are fighting. Don’t flinch. Go look. Civilians, women, children, do not look. You will never be able to remove these images from your mind. http://themattwalshblog.com/2014/05/07/this-is-my-positive-abortion-story/ On second thought, perhaps you should look, ladies. Take a good, hard, look. […]

Total Conversion

Posted April 21, 2014 By John C Wright

Vox Day looked up somewheres online and found my conversion story. Here it is: http://voxday.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-testimony-of-john-c-wright.html For those of you who are interested in hearing the same story told impromptu, without notes, and curious about what my voice sounds like, here is a podcast of a radio program where I was interviewed on my conversion experience: […]

On Contraception

Posted April 4, 2014 By John C Wright

I received a somewhat odd letter from a reader code-named Thomas Binu which I here reprint in full: This is off-topic, but I couldn’t find a place to email you this directly, hence posting it here. I just happened to visit your blog today, and found it interesting enough to spend most of my free […]

Cosmos and the Cartoon Maker

Posted March 10, 2014 By John C Wright

It may be a breach of net etiquette to reproduce an entire entry rather than a hook line and a link, but (1) Mr Shea and I are two founding members of the Shea-Wright mutual admiration society, and, I believe, as of last meeting, still the only members and (2) the entry is short. Here […]

Thou Know’st Us Happy

Posted February 27, 2014 By John C Wright

Is there sex in heaven? A reader asks: On this earth, we’re never going to run away from the problem of fidelity, whether sexual or emotional, and it may be prudent to err on the side of caution in terms of forming friendships with members of the opposite sex especially after one is married. So, […]

GUEST POST: With Great Art Comes Great Responsibility

Posted October 14, 2013 By John C Wright

One of my readers answered my question about the true and the beautiful in words so clear and sentiments so true that I thought it best to reprint them here. Consider this to be a guest essay:  For some reason I could not log in to comment on the Magnificat post. I did want to […]
